Statistics is a collection of methods for observing and analyzing numerical data in order to make sensible decisions about them. In this course the basic ideas of the analysis of data and of statistical inference will be introduced. Little mathematical background is required; high school algebra is sufficient. Mathematical proofs will be minimal; reasoning and explanations will be based mostly on intuition, verbal arguments, figures, or numerical examples. Some computing will be required.
Students who have taken MATH 2560 will normally take MATH 2570 in the second semester. Students who require only 3 credits of statistics may wish to consider one of MATH 1131 or MATH 1532 (or even MATH 2565) instead.
